Comb jellies


Comb jellies look like jelly fishes but are unrelated and usually smaller. The most common species look like barrels or balls with eight rows of cilia along their entire body. These move synchronized for swimming.

The comb jellies are efficient predators on other plankton, mostly copepods but probably also fish eggs and larvae.

Comb jellies are common in all oceans although there are not many species.
